"Quasi-Balanced Circulations in Oceans and Atmospheres, Fall 2009"
" This course introduces the students to dynamics of large-scale circulations in oceans and atmospheres. Basic concepts include mass and momentum conservation, hydrostatic and geostrophic balance, and pressure and other vertical coordinates. It covers the topics of fundamental conservation and balance principles for large-scale flow, generation and dissipation of quasi-balanced eddies, as well as equilibrated quasi-balanced systems. Examples of oceanic and atmospheric quasi-balanced flows, compu
Animal Behavior Experiments Using Arthropods
This exercise is designed to familiarize the student with ethology, the study of animal behavior, by observing the behavior of several different arthropods.
Einstein in Time
This fun Web site is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they are introduced to Einstein's scientific and humanitarian pursuits with two engaging, kid-friendly sections:Einstein in Time, a fascinating look at the major events in his life, presented in a time-line. Everyday Einstein: Humanitarian, a quick overview of how he used his fame to draw attention to the things he believed in.
Authors@Google: Evgeny Morozov
"The Net Delusion: The Dark Side of Internet Freedom" by Evgeny Morozov A timely examination of the promise and peril of the Internet in politics with controversial author Evgeny Morozov. As Egypt, Tunisia, Iran, and other regimes meet resistance from citizens using technology to plan and document revolt, Morozov offers a rare and well-argued critique of the web as a democratizing force. In this spirited book, journalist and social commentator Evgeny Morozov shows that by falling for the supp

The Strongest Pump of All
In this lesson the students will learn how the heart functions. Students will be introduced to the concept of action potential generation. The lesson will explain how action potential generation causes the electrical current that causes muscle contraction in the heart. Students will be introduced to the basic electrical signal generated by the heart; P, QRS, and T waves. The lesson will approach the heart from an engineering standpoint and encourage students to design ways to improve heart funct
Sticks and Stones Will Break That Bone!
Students learn about the strength of bones and methods of helping to mend fractured bones. During a class demonstration, a chicken bone is broken by applying a load until it reaches a point of failure (fracture). Then, working as biomedical engineers, students teams design their own splint or cast to help repair a fractured bone, learning about the strength of materials used.
Journey to the Afterlife
In groups of four, have students design an Egyptian funerary barge to transport the mummy through the underworld to the afterlife. The design of the boat is extremely critical in order for the mummy to have a chance to reach and enter the afterlife. In planning the design of the boats, students should be aware of the perils of the underworld. The student will be given the materials and tools the ancient Egyptians had at their disposal in constructing the boats. Once the students have determined
Engineering for the Three Little Pigs
The purpose of this activity is to demonstrate the importance of rocks, soils and minerals in engineering and how using the right material for the right job is important. The students build three different sand castles and test them for strength and resistance to weathering. Then, they discuss how the buildings are different and what engineers need to think about when using rocks, soils and minerals for construction.
Multiple Sclerosis - Coordination Exam - Lower Extremities Sub-exam - Patient 18
Ed is a 57-year-old Caucasian male with a 15-year history of neurological disability that was diagnosed after his initial attack as multiple sclerosis. Lumbar puncture demonstrated the presence of numerous oligoclonal bands and MRI later showed multiple white matter plaques. He suffers from a significant dysarthria, as well as tremor and ataxia.
Neuropathy - Motor Exam - Screening Tests Sub-exam - Patient 7
This 61-year-old man has had slowly progressive gait disturbance and weakness of his legs for 14 years. He has developed a limp in both legs, and his feet trip on objects and on uneven floor surfaces resulting in falls. He feels uncoordinated and unbalanced especially in the dark. He has to use a cane to assist ambulation. For the last 10 years, he has had numbness and tingling in both lower extremities. This began in his toes and now has extended proximally to his knees.
Posterior Fossa Tumor - General Observations Exam - Opening Interview Sub-exam - Patient 9
Patient is a 58-year-old white male with a history of acoustic neuroma that was resected in 1990. He has residual cranial nerve palsies on the right side and experiences tremors, ataxia and disequilibrium. His wife reports that she has noticed an increase in right hand tremor for the past year or so. The tremor worsens as the day progresses and occurs with activity. Patient reports an increase in balance problems while standing over the past 4 months. He has noticed that he staggers a step or t
Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy - Cranial Nerves Exam - Spinal Accessory (CN XI) Nerve Sub-exam - Patien
Patient is a 52-year-old African-American male with a known diagnosis of myotonic muscular dystrophy. His neuromuscular symptoms began in the early 1990s with poor dexterity in the hands, dropping objects, and clumsiness with fine motor weakness. He is very slow buttoning clothes, putting on his shoes, brushing his teeth, shaving, and other similar activities. He has trouble in ambulation and falls frequently. He has trouble getting up from a chair or sofa and climbing stairs. He also reports co
Some of Britain’s most dramatic scenery is to be found in the Scottish Highlands. The sight of mighty Ben Nevis, the desolate plateau of the Cairngorms, or the imposing landscapes of Glen Coe can unleash the call of the wild in all of us. Although these landforms were largely carved by glacial activity that ended some 10,000 years ago, the rocks themselves tell of a much older history. The Highlands are merely eroded stumps of a much higher range of ancient mountains. This unit is an account o
